An introduction to eSIM for IoT
July 16, 2019
Emerging cellular technology trends have dramatically impacted not only the functionality that IoT devices are capable of, but also the devices themselves. Furthermore, the individual modules within IoT devices may also have to be updated.
Take, for example, the evolution of the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card. As consumer cellular devices adopted a more sleek, slim profile, the large SIM cards of the past were no longer a good fit, literally. Smaller alternatives, like micro- and nano-SIM cards, became the new norm. For IoT solutions, other factors including intended application and environment drove change and lead us to the next evolution: eSIM technology.
But what exactly does eSIM entail? Embedded SIM cards open a new world of possibilities for IoT solution providers and your organisation. From reduced downtime to expanded carrier connectivity, eSIM technology addresses many challenges for IoT solutions that aren’t possible with traditional SIM technology. And as great as the promise of eSIM sounds, there is still a lot to learn about the technology itself.
